Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Psalm 51:10
Is that your prayer today?
Real lasting change must happen in our heart, and that lasting change is what we should be after. It can't just be in our behaviour, but we must fundamentally change our belief.
We need a changed heart (cleansed and renewed) so we are not separated from God. Our habits create the condition of our heart, and the heart determines the course of our lives (Proverbs 4:23).
Take charge of your heart! It's time to declutter and take inventory. Ask God to search and reveal what's inside, and allow Him to do the mending. A broken and a contrite (repentant) heart, He will not reject (Psalm 51:17).
